Liz Chapman (neé Wollen)'s first African experience was a three-month overland tour around Tanzania, Mozambique, Botswana, South Africa and Zambia shortly before starting her university degree. Spending half of this in Tanzania in the foothills of Kilimanjaro she quickly fell in love with it!

While studying economics at Exeter University, Liz took advantage of the long holidays to explore other corners of the world across Asia and Europe. After graduating she moved to France to spend 6 months working in the Alps, before swapping the snow for the sun to spend 2 months doing marine conservation in the Seychelles.

Liz returned to London in 2009 to join the Expert Africa team where she has since spent 6-8 weeks each year travelling in Africa. In recent years she has climbed Kilimanjaro, extensively researched Rwanda, helped research the latest Bradt Guide to Zanzibar, trekked gorillas in the Congo, and visited almost every camp in Tanzania!
